Providing an updated and comprehensive account of the properties
of solid polymers, the book covers all aspects of mechanical
behaviour. This includes finite elastic behavior, linear
viscoelasticity and mechanical relaxations, mechanical
anisotropy, non-linear viscoelasicity, yield behavior and
fracture. New to this edition is coverage of polymer
nanocomposites, and molecular interpretations of yield, e.g.
Bowden, Young, and... more...
